The Tauranga International Marathon: It's not like any other marathon event. Well, you can still run/walk 42.2km, 21.1km, 10km or 5km—plus there’s a 2km kids (and parents!) dash. But here’s the clincher—it’s the first ever international marathon event to be held in New Zealand’s sunshine capital. Think sea, sun, surf; think cafés, culture and seriously cool stuff; think fast, flat, fun.
A FESTIVAL LIKE NO OTHER
This will be a running and walking festival like no other, celebrating Tauranga's best spaces and places. With a run or walk distance for all and vistas to take your breath away, this is the one you have been waiting for—FAST, FLAT, FUN in NZ's sunshine capital!
Get your friends, family and work-mates together, we'll see you on the start-line!
We thought: ‘Let’s add an international marathon to the city by the sea where the skies are blue, the air is warm, the harbour sparkles and the lifestyle is pure chill out’.
Tauranga might mean a place of rest or anchorage, but we thought we’d add some pace to the place and share a slice of New Zealand with people who like to get out and do stuff with their mates, family and the friends you’ll make on the way.
Why wouldn't you
WHY WOULDN'T YOU?
Never owned a pair of trainers? Let T.I.M talk you into it! This is the one run event that could get you hooked, your opportunity to tick it off the bucket list and give you an awesome time with friends and family in one of New Zealand’s most stunning locations.
This is not just a one-off event and go home kind of thing, it’s going to be an amazing weekend for everyone. You'll feel the buzz and love the hype!
